"By Alphonso Trumpbour Clearwater, LL.D. 

The History of Ulster County may be said to consist of four periods. 
The first began with the establishment of a Dutch trading post at 
Ponckhockie, the junction of the Hudson and the E4)ndout, in 1614. The 
second with the settlement at Kingston of ChristofHe Daavis, Mattys 
Hendrix and Johan DeHulter, Dutchmen, and Thomas Chambers, an 
Englishman, in 1652. The third with the treaty of Paris in 1763. The 
fourth with the inauguration at Kingston of George Clinton, the first 
Governor of the State under the Constitution, on the 30th day of July, 
1777. During each of these periods the County played an important part, 
and so influential were the people of Ulster in swinging the colony into 
line with the patriot cause that in October, 1777, the British under Sir 
John Vaughan wantonly burned Kingston in retaliation. Down to 1683 
the only civil divisions of the Province of New York were Manors, Towns 
or Cities and Patents. On the first of November of that year, Dongan 
being Governor, the following Act was passed by the Governor, Council 
and Representatives : 

"An Act to divide the Province and Dependencyes into 
Shires and Countyes, passed November ist, 1683. Having 
taken into consideration the necessity of divideing the Prov- 
ince into respective Countyes for the better governing and 
settling Courts in the same. 

Bee it enacted by the Governor and Councell and Repre- 
sentatives, and by the authority of the same, the said Province bee 
divided into twelve Countyes as follows ****** 

The Countye of Ulster to contain the Townes of Kings- 
ton, Hurley and Marble Towne, Ffox Hall and the New Paltz and 
all the villages, neighborhoods and christian habitacions on the west 
side of the Hudsons River from the Murderer's Creek near the High- 
lands to the Sawyer's Creek." 

Of these Kingston, Hurley and Marbletown were towns, Fox Hall 
was a manor and New Paltz was held by patent. Since the granting of 
this charter, the County of Sullivan, and parts of the Counties of Greene, 
Delaware and Orange have been taken from the territory it described. 
Situate upon the west bank of the Hudson, practically midway between 
New Amsterdam and Fort Orange (New York and Albany), and in 
many respects the rival of those places, having for its whole eastern front 
the great natural highway of the Hudson, and traversed by three large 
streams, the Esopus, the Rondout and the Wallkill, along which passed 
the constantly traveled Indian trails connecting the North (The Hudson) 
with the South (The Delaware) river, Ulster early became and always 
has remained prominent, if not pre-eminent, in historical interest. Its 
early settlers principally came from Holland. Many of them were the 
younger sons of well-to-do Dutch families who, inspired by that spirit 
of adventure common to the youth of all times and all lands, sought a 
broader sphere of action in the new world than was afforded by the old. 
To Ulster came also the Huguenots who, exiled from France because of 
their religious faith, found among the Dutch of Esopus an hospitable 
welcome and the right to a free and open Bible. Thus it is that for more 
than two and a half centuries the men who have been most prominent 
and potent in the affairs of the County have, as a rule, borne Dutch or 
Huguenot names. To the Dutch more than to any other people America 
owes its civil and religious liberty, and its wise and tolerant system of 
laws, the Pilgrims first learning of the strength and advantage of a repub- 
lican form of government during their sojourn in Holland. To the Dutch 
also the world is indebted for the system of recording deeds, mortgages 
and wills, and from the earliest settlement to the present the records of 
Ulster have been scrupulously and accurately kept, running back in un- 
broken succession for over two hundred and fifty years. The early records 
are written in Dutch and, aside from those of marriages and baptism, con- 
sist of six classes : — 

1. The record of the transfers of lands by deed. 

2. The record of the mortgaging of lands for debt. 

3. The record of wills, and the succession of estates. 

4. The record of the acknowledgement of debt, as distinct from 

that creating a lien on lands. 
• 5. The record of judicial transactions. 

6. The record of agreements with the Indians. 

The original records are contained in a number of well worn and 
much thumbed volumes, originally bound, some in vellum, some in sheep- 
skin, and have had rather a remarkable history. They remained in the 
office of the County Clerk at Kingston from the time they were written 
until about fifty years ago, when suddenly they disappeared. Many efforts 
were made to find them. The Grand Jury instituted an investigation, the 
Board of Supervisors offered a liberal reward for their return, but nothing 
could be learned of their whereabouts or by whom they had been taken. 
One day during the summer of 1895 a large box was delivered to the 
County Clerk by an Express Company. It contained the long lost records, 
carefully covered with a waterproof wrapper and closely packed with 
cotton wool. They had been shipped from an obscure village on the 
southern shore of Long Island by a person whose name and address were 
not given. It is not known who took them, in whose possession they 
were during their absence, or who returned them. Various explanations 
have been suggested. Among others that they had been sent to Brooklyn 
for translation by a Dutch scholar who died before he began the work; 
that after his death his family sent them to the old City Hall of that City ; 
that when the new City Hall was erected they were returned to Kingston. 
This, however, does not account for all the known facts. After they 
were returned they were carefully examined by my father, Isaac Clear- 
water, who spoke and read Dutch as readily as he did English. He recog- 
nized their great importance and advised their translation into English. 
When the Board of Supervisors of the County met the following Novem- 
ber, I called its attention to the character of the material they contained, 
and suggested that they be translated at the expense of the County. The 
Board at once by unanimous resolution requested me to act as com- 
missioner for the purpose, and a translation was made of the early Dutch 
records not recorded in the Deed Books, which translation is now con- 
tained in three large folio volumes of over six hundred pages each, and 
with the original records preserved in the office of the County Clerk. 
Among the most interesting of the old records are those containing the 
proceedings and adjudications of the Dutch Court of Schout and Shep- 
pens from 1658 to 1684. That Court was the predecessor of the Court 
of Common Pleas, of the Court of Sessions and of the existing County 
Court, and for strict impartiality, jealousy of the rights of the individual, 
the equitable administration of justice, soundness of judgment and com- 
pression and lucidity, of statement its proceedings and decisions rarely 
have been surpassed, while its records portray the life of the early settler 

in a picturesque and interesting manner. A partial index of them recently 
has been printed by the County of Albany as part of its own early records 
which that County is now putting in print, this index being included 
because the intimate relations which existed between the people of the 
settlements of Fort Orange, Beverwyck and Rensselaerwyck and those 
of Esopus, Wiltwyck and Kingston during the seventeenth and eighteenth 
centuries resulted in many transactions the record of which was indiffer- 
ently kept at one place or the other. 

Dr. Anjou, omitting only the ornate legal formulas which form part 
of the deeds, mortgages and wills of the period, presents all that which 
is of interest alike to the student and the general reader, particularly noting 
any entry of unusual character. The seals attached to the documents, of 
which rubbings have been made and engraved in many cases, are private 
seals. Official seals were not early used. Most well-to-do Dutchmen used 
seals engraved according to their fancy, a few used their family arms, but 
this was the exception. A novice always experiences difficulty in tracing 
the ancestry of Dutch families, in examining the documents signed by 
Dutchmen and in following the proceedings of Dutch Courts in America, 
arising from the fact that, while the French and English invariably used 
their surnames, the Dutch, as a rule, were indifferent about this and 
usually are designated by others, and designate themselves, by their Chris- 
tian names alone, even in important legal documents. This answered 
every purpose in a primitive and small community where everyone was 
known, but now leads to much confusion. For instance, 

Lambert Huyberts is Lambert Huyberts Brink. 

Tjrick Claessen — Tjrick Claessen De Witt. 

Jan Wilhemsen — Jan Wilhemsen Hooghteyling (Houghtaling). 

Jan Mattys — ^Jan Mattys Jansen. 

Teunis Jacobse, or Jacobsen — Tunis Jacobsen Klaarwater (Clearwater) 

Peter Cornelius — Peter Cornelius Low.

Aaert Jacobsen — Aaert Jacobsen Van Wagonen. 

The first statutory provision for the probate of wills and the granting 
of letters of administration was enacted by the Governor, Council and 
Representatives convened in general assembly on the nth day of Novem- 
ber, 16^2. The preamble recited that the rights of orphans and the estates 
of such as died intestate throughout the Province were often concealed, 


wasted, embezzled and destroyed to the utter ruin of many orphans and 
to the prejudice of the next of kin for want of having good and sufficient 
persons in each county to enquire after the same, and the Act provided 
that on or before the 25th day of March, 1693, there should be elected 
and appointed in each town throughout the counties within the Province 
two able and sufficient freeholders who should, upon the death of any 
person in their respective towns, repair to the place of habitation where 
the deceased resided within forty-eight hours after the interment and make 
enquiry if the deceased made any will, or had any real or personal estate 
not devised by him at the time of his death, and if upon enquiry it was 
found that he had made no will, but had died intestate, then it should be 
lawful for such freeholders to make strict and diligent search and enquiry 
into all the real and personal estate that the intestate died possessed of, 
and inventory the same and bring or cause to be brought unto such person 
or persons in the county where the intestate died who should be appointed 
by the Governor to supervise the intestate's estates, and file with him upon 
their oath an inventory of the estate, whereupon the supervisor of estates 
should issue his warrant to two good and sufficient freeholders within 
the town where the intestate died for the appraisement of the goods and 
chattels left by the intestate, and upon the return of the same he should 
cause the goods and chattels to be secured or sold, the proceeds to remain 
in his hands or to be placed into good and sufficient hands who should be 
able to produce the same again when the next of kin should appear in right 
to claim the same. It further provided that if the intestate at the time 
of his death left a wife and children behind him, then, in such case, the 
wife only should have the right of administration, but if he left only 
orphans and had no relations or kindred who would administer upon his 
estate, then the supervisor of each county should have the administration 
and care of the estate, and the same should be secured for the use, 
benefit and behoof of the orphans, and should be secured and improved 
until the orphans married or came to the age of twenty-one years. It firr- 
ther provided that the supervisor of estates should take effectual care of the 
education and instruction of the orphans in the Holy Protestant Religion, 
and that they should be honestly maintained according to the capacity of 
the estate. It was further enacted that the several Judges of the respective 
Courts in remote counties in open Court, and on extraordinary occasions 
or, if necessary, out of Court, assisted with two Justices of the Peace, might 
grant probate of any will or letters of administration to any person where 
the estate exceeded the value of fifty pounds. 

Testamentary dispositions of property were made before a judicial 
ofHcer during the lifetime of the testator, and consequently probate after 
the testator's death was unnecessary. The method was primitive, but 
effective. The testator appeared in Court and stated to the Judges, who 
were the Schout and Sheppens, the disposition he wished to make of his 
property. This was entered upon the minutes, and, unless revoked, when 
he died the property was disposed of according to his recorded wishes. 
Beginning in 1685, wills were recorded in the book of deeds indiscrimi- 
nately with grants of land and mortgages, and this practice continued 
down to 1778, nearly a year after the adoption of the first constitution. 
Hundreds of wills, however, were recorded in New York and Albany, 
and apparently it was the custom to have them recorded in either or both 
offices until 1786, when testamentary dispositions were proved before the 
Court of Common Pleas and an entry of the record was made in a book 
kept for that purpose, "agreeable to an Act of the Legislature of the 
State of New York, passed on the Fourth day of April, 1786." A Sur- 
rogate's Court was established in 1787, and the first will proven in that 
court bears date January 5th, 1787, and was recorded on the loth day 
of May of that year. The first Surrogate was Joseph Gasherie, 
whose seal, now the seal of the Surrogate's Court, was an oblong oval 
after the pattern of the seals of the old Ecclesiastical Courts, and con- 
tained the figure of a woman, holding a child by the hand, standing near 
a monument the finial ornament of which was a mortuary urn. A device 
evidently intended to furnish in realistic suggestion what it lacked in 
artistic conception. 

I can hardly speak too highly of the care taken by Dr. Anjou in 
preparing this work. Every precaution seems to have been taken against 
error. Not only is the work authentic, but official, and a properly certified 
copy of any of the records it contains can at any time be obtained from 
the official in whose custody the original record is kept at an insignificant 
cost without the long, laborious and expensive search which the effort 
to find records of this character usually involves, and when thus procured 
and certified it will be admissible in evidence in any Court of justice in 
any civilized country of the world, while the work itself can be cited as 
authoritative and decisive upon genealogical questions by all applicants 
for membership in the great patriotic and historic societies of this country. 
Thus it is and will be invaluable not only to the historians, antiquarians 
and genealogists of the day and of all time, but to every person de- 
scended from those ancestors who gave to Ulster a unique distinction 
among the counties of America. 



The first two volumes of Ulster County Probate Records, now 
presented, consist of careful, verbatim abstracts of wills, letters of admin- 
istration after intestates, bonds of administrators, renunciations, and 
inventories from 1663 to 1766, 1792 and 1827, respectively, on file or 
deposited in the offices of the County Clerk of Ulster County, at Kingston, 
the Surrogate of Ulster County, at Kingston, the Surrogate of New York, 
the Library of the Long Island Historical Society, or in hands of private 
individuals, who courteously have permitted a transcript to be taken for 

A large proportion of these records were written in the Dutch lan- 
guage, and a few wills were in French. Of all these a careful copy has 
been made, comparison made with the original records, and a literal 
English translation given. In the translation of the Dutch records, the 
compiler has had the assistance of several Dutch scholars. 

The official translation of the Dutch records at Kingston includes 
only a small part of the wills and deeds, written in the Dutch language, 
and not one of those recorded in the Deed- or Will-Books. 

Ulster wills, filed in the office of the Surrogate at New York, have 
ben rendered in a new translation, as the abstracts thereof, which were 
issued by the New York Historical Society, are neither correct nor com- 
plete, or in any way reliable. 

About 250 wills relating to Ulster, and not included in these volumes, 
are filed in Albany ; a careful abstract, Dutch and English, will be printed 
in the third volume of Ulster County Probate Records, which will also 
contain wills probated in New York from 1766, and in Kingston from 


In the compilation of the list of Dutch and Frisian baptismal names, 
the compiler has had the assistance of several Dutch scholars, and it is 
believed this list is the most complete so far issued. 

The genealogical and historical data can, in the main, be accepted 
as reliable, as the compiler has depended principally upon public documents, 
i. e., parish registers, land-papers, and similar records. The words 
"married after" indicate that banns were issued on that date, the marriage 
probably taking place soon after. It is curious to note, however, that the 
Secretary's papers frequently contain statements from which it would 
appear as if the marriage was performed previous to the publication of 

Variations of surnames have been properly noted, and carefully in- 
dicated, both in the text and in the indexes ; married daughters have been 

indexed both under the paternal surname and the names of their husbands. 
Children have, as a rule, been indexed under all the surnames which the 
Dutch system of nomenclature permitted them to adopt, unless known 
by a certain name, under which they then will be found. 

The separate index of instruments, with name of testators, or intes- 
tate, character of document, date of issue and date of probate, all arranged 
alphabetically, will be found useful. Surnames relating to the same 
family, although the spelling may vary, have been placed under one 
heading and proper cross-references made to this heading. 

The compiler is indebted to Messrs. Gerritt H. Van Wagenen, Thomas 
G. Evans, B. Fernow, Wm. Gordon Ver Planck, Eugene F. McPike, 
H. O. Collins, Frank J. Conkling, and Geo. A. Morrison, Jr., for genea- 
logical data; to Messrs. Arthur C. Connelly and John D. Fratsher for 
assistance in comparing these abstracts with the original records, and 
to many others for help and encouragement. 

The Inventories, it is hoped, will throw much new light upon the 
home life, the habits and possessions of the early inhabitants of Ulster 
County. As a rule, few books were found in the colony, and these 
consisted mainly of the great Bible, generally Dutch, psalm-books, and 
sermons. In only one inventory do we find a Virgil, Young's Night 
Thoughts, and other books of similar character. "A Pair of Humspun 
Breeches" gives us an idea of the industrial life among the early inhabi- 
tants. Spinning wheels, evidently, were found in every family. The 
necessity for protection against the Indians, and the hunt, made "guns" of 
all descriptions necessary. Every family of any importance had slaves, 
male and female, and it is curious to note that one testator, called to New 
York to fight against the "oppressors (the English) who wish to place 
them under slavery," should continue his tirade with the statement that 
his "slaves are not to be free." 

Rent was paid in "marketable winter or summer wheat." "Green 
rugs" frequently occurs in the inventories. Pewter, or "puter," was the 
most common metal used, but silver spoons and forks were not uncommon. 
Knee breeches and knee-buckles, waistcoats, and shoe buckles for the men, 
petticoats, short gowns, check aprons, white linen stockings, and black 
hoods for the women, were the garments most frequently mentioned. 
After the Revolution, we find mention of guns, swords, "baginets," con- 
duce boxes, and powder horns. 

The old English system of giving to the eldest son some small per- 
sonal property, as "his right for being my first born," prevailed until late. 
The testators, as a rule, were deeply religious, and their testaments invari- 
ably contain a long religious preamble, in which the testator gives his 
soul to his "Redeemer and Saviour," trusting that, notwithstanding his 
sins, he will arise on the day of judgment. Outfits for the unmarried 
daughters were frequently provided for, and a careful perusal of these 
documents will convince the reader of the generous sense of justice to all 
related to the testator, which prevails. In only a few cases, some member 
of the family has been cut off with the proverbial shilling. 

From a letter, written by Lord Cornbury to Secretary Hodges, we 
find that 

"The trade of the Province, in 1705, consists chiefly of flower 
and bisketts, which is sent to the Islands in the West Indies, in return 
they bring Rum, Sugar, Molasses, and sometimes pieces of Eight, and • 
Cocoa, and Logwood ; to Europe Our people send Skins of all sort, 
Whale Oyle and Bone." 

(Extract from Lord Cornbury's letter to Seer. Hodges, Lon- 
don Documents, XVI.) 

Governor Moore, in an official letter to the Lords of Trade, written 
in 1767, stated that "every family makes a coarse cloth called lindsey- 
woolsey, the warp being of linen and the woof of wool. Every family is 
furnished with a loom, and the itinerant weavers who travel about the 
country, put a finishing-hand to the work." 

Looms were frequently mentioned in the wills and inventories, as well 
as izer, or wafer-irons, which were favorite wedding presents, and often 
decorated with the coat-of-arms of the groom, together with his initials 
and those of his bride, and the date of their marriage. 

The compiler would be indebted for any genealogical or historical 
data, relating to families mentioned in Ulster County Probate Records, 
which have not been brought out in the text, particularly baptisms, mar- 
riages and deaths. Wills in the hands of private parties, if placed at the 
disposal of the compiler, will be copied, properly translated, if necessary, 
and printed in the third volume of these records.

Abstracts of Wills on File in the County Clerk's 
Office, City of Kingston, N. Y. 

(The Dutch records of Ulster County from 1663 to 1684 consist of 
six volumes of court proceedings, and five volumes of secretary's papers, 
containing deeds, mortgages, wills, etc., all kept in a square wooden box, 
under lock and key. A translation of these records was made in 1896, 
which was subsequently bound in three large foUo-volumes. Unfortu- 
nately, there is no index to these volumes, which makes them practically 
inaccessible to the general searcher. In the Report of the Public Archives 
Commission of the American Historical Association, 1900, II., p. "jy, atten- 
tion was called to a few errors, "as a rule unimportant" and "easily cor- 
rected" in case the translations should be printed." While the official 
translation has been utilized, a careful comparison with the original 
records has been made, and great care has been observed in securing the 
proper meaning intended by the testators).

Ques. s. If the Grand Children Dirk & Lea Wynkoop die under Age who is to have their 

Ques. 6. Whether any of the Devises can sell an undivided Fart before the death of Cornelius? 
I am of Opinion, as to the 

Ques. I. That the Crop of Wheat and Rye will go to tha Son and not to the Executors. 

Ques. XL That the Testators Widow is by law entitled to no more of the Personal Estate than 
is given her b^ the Will. But that she is exclusive of the Will entitled to her 
Dowry. That is to say, the one third Part of all the Testators Lands and Tene- 
ments for and during her natural Life. 

Ques. III. That no legal Division can be made until all the Parties to such Division are of 
lawful Age, unless it is done in Virtue of a Law of the I.egislature passed the 
8 Jan. 1762. But to avoid the Expenses of that Mode of Partition, it has been 
usual for some third Person to become Bound (in Behalf of the Minors interested 
in the Lands to be divided) that such Minors, when they arrive to Lawful Age, 
should agree to and confirm the Partition and execute Deeds for the Purpose. 

Ques. IV. That the Testator's Son may demise or even sell for & during the Term of his 
natural Life the Real Estate devised to him by his Father's Will. 

Ques. V. If one of the Testator's Grand Children Dirk & Lea Wynkoop should die under Age, 
the Part or share of the real Estate of the one so dying, will go to the Survivor of 
them. But if they should both die under Age, without lawful Issue, their whole 
Part will go to their Uncle, the Testators eldest Son, as Heir at Law. — But as to 
their Part of the Personal Estate Dirk may dispose of his at the Age of 14, and 
Lea at the age of 12 to whom they please, but not by Will, unless they previously 
make a Division between them of their Part. 

Ques. VI. That any of the Devises may sell their undivided Part of the Real Estate before the 
Death of the Testators Son Cornelius.

Surnames have been indexed as they appear at the beginning of an 
instrument, as a signature at the bottom thereof, and as they are written 
in parish registers and public documents, quoted in the historical and 
genealogical notes, e. g., Mattysen under Mattysen, Tysen, Van Keulen, 
Van Keuren; Jansen under Vermeulen, Van Oosterhoudt, Joosten, Van 
Steenbergh; Roosa under Heymanse ; Brinck under Lambertse and Huy- 
bertse, etc. 

Children are indexed under the name of their parents, unless known 
by some other surname. Married daughters are indexed under the names 
of their husbands, as well as under the various surnames, by which their 
parents were known. 

Baptismal names have, as a rule, been placed under English head- 
ings. Students, who are unfamiliar with Dutch nomenclature, are referred 
to pages 17-19. 

Italics indicate a testator, or an intestate. 

An asterisk (*) signifies that a name occurs more than once on a 

Cross references are given where equivalent names are far apart, or 
dissimilar, or where members of the family were known by several names, 
as Aertsen, Van Wagenen, Jacobsen; Alsdorff, Aulsdorff; Slichtenhorst, 
van Sleghtenhorst. 

Particular attention is called to the fact that it will not be necessary 
to search the entire index for various spellings of the same surname. 
Delamater, De Lamater, Delametter, Le Maistre, De la Maistre, will all 
be found under Delamater, etc., cross references under all these headings 
referring to the general heading.
